Structural Educational Requirement (SERS) Certificate CT and MRI 

UNM is offering a structured educational course plan that includes Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) course work or Computed Tomography (CT) coursework with no clinical element. The Structured Educational Requirement Student (SERS) completes (6) required academic courses. The program does not include clinical rotation classes. Students must have supervisor consent to perform clinical rotation at their place of employment. 

This is a response to a requirement set the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The ARRT now requires students to demonstrate content proficiency in specific content areas to be eligible to take the post primary registry exam for MRI or CT. Graduated Radiologic Technologists who have gained employment in the field (CT or MRI), are required to complete registry verification within one year.

What We Offer 

UNM offers the verification coursework that fulfills the requirement. UNM’s instructional content fulfills the following content areas: Patient Care, Safety, Image Production and Procedures.  UNM Radiologic Sciences Program is offering the structured education in three consecutive semesters. Courses are offered on-line.  


Application submission is required directly to the Radiologic Sciences program to include: references and transcripts from all prior colleges attended. Consult with the department for the application deadline for admittance into the Certificate programs. Interviews are not required for the SERS programs.
